Portloe is situated into a steep valley on the sheltered west coast of Veryan Bay. It has a small shingle beach.

In the past it has replicated the Mediterranean in Forever England with John Mills and was also use in Channel 4's Camomile Lawn and an early version of Treasure Island. This is popular holiday destination that keeps the tourist information particularly busy with holiday enquiries for self catering holiday homes.

Cottages offer visitors more freedom than a hotel and present a home away from home experience so that they are free to explore Cornwall as they please. Many Cottages in this totally unspoilt area look the same as when they were built but you will find that all Portloe holiday cottages and farm barn conversations are completely refurbished inside.

The names of some of the cottages in Portloe depict the area perfectly, names such as farm cottage, dolphin, cove, beach, ocean view and Bay cottage.

A perfect cottage & stunning garden!

5 of 5
Four of us stayed here for a family birthday celebration and it couldn't have been much better. The cottage was spacious yet cosy, the location was ideal for various different walks and the pubs on our doorstep were great for an afternoon drink or hearty meal. Everyone loved it and we will definitely be back!

We stayed for three days with our dog during our half term break and had a thoroughly lovely time-this really is a special place, made to feel very welcome, nothing too much trouble. Great location and lots to see near by. The accomadation was excellent, can't wait to visit again.

Fab flat with amazing panoramic view of Falmouth bay.

5 of 5
The flat exceeded our expectations with amazing view and fab retro decor. Wonderful position on the seafront. Big picture window with comfortable chairs from which to soak in the views. Brilliant little kitchen very well kitted out, we wanted for nothing!
